Matt Mason’s put together a nice slidecast in conjunction with the recent release of his book, The Pirate’s Dilemma: How Youth Culture is Reinventing Capitalism. The presentation is a good primer for the topic, offering a bit of interesting background on the history of piracy ‘n punk and how the ethos behind both has manifested – and serves as a stimulus for innovation and change – in media and culture today. Mason’s theory is compelling, and his experience as a former pirate radio DJ in London as well as a noted journalist has established him as an authority on the subject. View the slidecast below:
